Looking for an Animated model of the Geneva Wheel Assembly

jack_aiellojack_aiello Member Posts: 9 PRO
While I know how to build a Geneva Wheel Assembly, I don't know how to animate the assembly.  In particular how to set the ratio of rotation between the slotted wheel and driver wheel (with 1 pin)?
Does anyone have a demo that I can play with to learn how to change the settings?

    Jack, I have the same problem. I have created an eight station wheel with a single pin driver. I can cause the pin using a tangent mate to move in only one slot. I’ve not devised a method of causing the pin to index to the next and subsequent slots.
